Book Description

When Jessie Evans, a Georgia Southern University cheerleader, leaves for her best friend’s wedding the last thing she expects is for the seat next to her to be taken. After all, she’d only canceled Seat 2A hours prior after catching her boyfriend cheating. 

Kendal Vargas, son of a Spanish emigrant fashion guru, is on his way to Whistler for a “mancation”. Running to buy a neck pillow before his flight, Kendal bumps into Jessie Evans. Kendal is in a hurry. Kendal does not stop to help her. Kendal forgot his neck pillow and the plane is about to leave and hey—who could travel without a neck pillow?

Charmed by Jessie’s beauty, and watching her board his very plane, Kendal takes a whim and changes his seat to one he hopes would be next to her. Jessie ignores Kendal’s attempt to be chatty but when their connecting flight gets canceled overnight, the pair has a chance to make a real connection.

Seven years later, Jessie bumps into Kendal in the produce aisle of a Portland grocery store. No neck pillow is involved, except there is a beautiful little girl who looks just like him. Fate has given them another shot but will Kendal’s whims keep them apart?

My Thoughts

I read Dela's previous work, The 52nd and I loved it. 

Unfortunately, Seat 2A, her debut contemporary, did not do the job for me. The first three chapters were very promising and I was liking the story a lot, the way Kendall and Jessie meet it's so original, a very strong connection between them when they first meet but after this event it all went down for me. The story became very predictable, the dialogues cheesy at times, some scenes felt forced and towards the end it felt almost like everything was being rushed. I did not see a real character development and the attitude of both main characters, Jessie and Kendall, became annoying. All these different situations made me lost interest, kept reading hoping that something I was missing would happen but unfortunately never did. 

Seat 2A is a story with a very good potential but in need of more character development and not to rush the story, so many things happening so fast that it did not allow me to really connect with the story, neither the characters.

Thanks to the Author for sending an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
